I would look elsewhere. I've never heard a good comment regarding BB MTM.

I'm leaning toward Henry Poole, they travel to Washington DC several times a year and I'll be going to London in June for business. Would also like to try Oxxford Clothiers.

Steed would be another great MTM option.

Henry Poole is great, but the price difference will be very significant. If you do go that route, I would suggest asking for Alex as your cutter.

Thanks, I'll add them to my list.

I haven't done research on price yet but I'm hoping I can get something for close to $2k. I didn't realize you could request a cutter. Thanks!

I thought everyone on the row starts at 5k?

Poole is ~ £3400 for a 2 piece with basic fabric. At current exchange rates this is $5600.

I have no experience with BB MTM, but upr_crust of WAYWRN fame has had several suits made for him through BB's program.  Might be worth asking him for more information.

Out of my price range.

Hey there -- I’m trying to work out a plan of action for my first suit in a long time, and I would be really grateful for your advice.

 

1) I’m trying to get the best price possible, and I’m willing to wait. I know from the Brooks Brothers e-mails I get that a preferred customer event is starting soon, with 25% off using the company credit card. It appears that I also get 15% with the BB credit card. I haven't applied for one yet. And I have access to about $450 of BB gift cards at 20% off.

 

- Does anyone know if the 15% and 25% discounts stack?

 

- I’m probably too late to get the gift cards and apply for the credit card for the upcoming customer event, so does anyone know when the next one is?  Should I target the preferred customer events, or are there even better times to buy? (Should I wait until the X-mas sale? I looked around then, but there was nothing my size and the SAs were too busy to help. I've also seen some mention of a 40% off card in this thread.)


- I have available to me $450 of gift cards to the following stores as well, at a 20% discount. Would they be better choices for a suit? LLBean Macy’s Express Eddie Bauer

 

2) Which BB suit should I get? I've been doing some reading, it seems the 1818 will give me the best deal at a half-canvas. I could probably go for the Golden Fleece at full-canvas, but is the extra spend worth it?

 

3) Should I order in-store or online? I’m not a big fan of going into the store, but I understand I would likely get a better fit that way. On the other hand, it’s unlikely they’ll have a good selection for me, since my drop is so wide. I’m a 38S in the jacket, 28 waist.

 

4) Based on group recommendations, I also went to try on some Allen Edmonds. I liked the brown Strands more than the black Park Avenues I tried. Black Park Avenues were too conservative. I like the versatility of brown Strands, it seemed like I could wear them with jeans or a suit. Given the brown Strand as a shoe shoe, what color suit should I get? Gray? My other pair of dress shoes are some very old, but still in decent shape, black fancy cap-toe Bostonians.

 

Thanks!

Same here. If anyone received a card and doesn't plan to use it, I would gladly accept the coupon code via PM. I've been waffling on buying a blazer and the 40% discount would be enough to get me off the fence. I bought a few items during the 30% corporate event and should have bought it then.

It's only for people who have shopped at BB in the past but have not purchased anything in a while to entice them to buy.
